Workshop

This is a mainly practical workshop where participation and peer support are key elements of learning in a safe and non-judgemental environment. This workshop combines principles from ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) training with frontline work experience gained through providing support and management. After delivering training on Managing Self-harming Behaviours, we have identified the need to create a first module to introduce this complex topic. This training will address some of the issues that are relevant when working or supporting someone who self-harms. This module is ideal as an introduction to our Specialist Accredited Training on Managing Self-harming Behaviour. A person who has lived experience of self-harm co-delivers this course.
